We camp a lot in our camper. I am looking for a LED flashlight with a bright fluorescent yellow body so we will see it if it gets left outside when we go camping. I have been searching and have not seen anything like what I want. Does anyone know of a flashlight like this?

Look up streamlight intrinsically safe. One is called a dualie if that helps. I have a 4a I use all the time and have for several years.

I was wondering about this, it occurs to me black is the worst possible colour for a flashlight if you drop it at night. Seems crazy that a brightly coloured flashlight is a rare specialised item.

The Dualie looks handy, but the 2lb weight and four "C" cells may be an issue for me. Anyone tried the Dualie with Eneloop AA to C adapters? How about the CRI and tint? I would think first responders and outdoors types would benefit a lot from good color rendition.

^ I use white eneloops and adapters in mine. It has somewhat reduced run time but it works for me. The ergonomics of the hang handle minimize the weight. CRI and tint? Yep, it's got some. :giggle:

Yeah there's different sized dualies. I was kind of pointing towards the whole line. Hopefully OP comes back and lets us know what he's decided on.

Funny...the SUREFIRE G2X PRO is what came to my mind first.

And then there is the whole Underwater Kinetics lineup.

I think the uwk ones are a brighter yellow, and would be easier to see. Plus for both brands, MADE IN USA!

Nightstick also has several lights that come in florescent colours. There are even some cheap lights on Amazon marketed as dive lights that are surprisingly decent if you run them of an 18650 rather than the 3AAA' adapters.

This looks like a pretty cool Dualie camping flashlight. Hi-Vis, 3XAA, flood, spot, & combo mode, with 'hi' CRI (Color-Rite / 90CRI @4000K) on the flood, & dual independent switches. Haven't used one personally.

How about the CRI and tint? I would think first responders and outdoors types would benefit a lot from good color rendition.

Am I really the only person posting in this thread who thinks a light w/ 90CRI in the ~4000K range would be ideal around a campsite (and is actually suggesting such a model)? Really? I find that hard to believe. I never cease to be amazed.

Some people are not picky about tint. You probably won't find a whole lot of gourmet chefs eating at McDonald's, Wendy's, Burger King, etc, but yet those places serve millions of meals. Different strokes for different folks. My late brother used to call me a coffee snob, yet I just drink Folgers. Go figure. :)

Probably, lol. During decades of camping I used all kinds of lights, I actually like 5000k better in the woods. CRI is not really important, all i need is to see when i'm going, and what i'm doing, any CRI will do, now when you combine woods, night, and alcohol, not just CRI but sometimes the color does not matter, lol, you'll do fine with any light, or not, regardless of the light. If you ask why drink at night while camping, what else is there to do in a woods at night, lol
